Had NO idea making paleo friendly spaghetti could be this easy. Pasta has been the hardest part to lose on the paleo diet. Going to buy the squash on the way home tonight!

Patricia – thank you for reaching out. I’m sorry it wasn’t clear in the directions. If you look at the 3rd sentence it says: “Mix all meatball ingredients, make into balls, place into baking dish and bake for 30 minutes” . I hope this helps. 🙂
